Outfit Details:
Peter pan collar dress: on sale at Zara
Army jacket: Zara from a few years back
Ancient Converse high tops

Originally, I had seen this dress at the Zara in Manila when my family and I went earlier this year. Not thinking clearly, I was about to buy it with the thought that it would be cheaper because the dollar is stronger than the peso and OBVIOUSLY it had to be less expensive because of this. Reality hit when I did the peso to dollar conversion in my head and realized that the price was equal to what it would cost in the US. Bummer.It was too expensive. 

Luckily, Zara had a crazy sale a month ago and I found this dress there for half off so I was pumped.  It's reaaallly short so naturally  the bike shorts were in full effect. To keep the look from getting too ridiculously twee I thought I''d dress it down with the army jacket and Chucks. I think it did the trick.

  5. I have the same dress and it's so lovely to wear. I got it in the Spring but I wish I was as patient as you for the sales! I feel like a massive cupcake sometimes since it flares out and tights are a must since it is short. You look great in it x

  13. This dress looks like it was MADE for you. It fits you like a glove and it really suits your style. You are one of the few girls I know who looks flawless in a peter pan collar. :)

  14. Love it! The military/chucks mix definitely downplayed the twee! Although the dress is fantastic on it's own, too!
